1) How would you describe your BACKGROUND?

I am a female sales person in a male-dominated technical field whose degree is in English. My first job after college was for a not-for-profit in Public Relations where I also bought the printing and I fell in love with the process. Several jobs later, I still think printing is magic.

2) What would SURPRISE people to realize about you?

Between collecting antique sleds, ladders and sandwich sets, I love Bruce Springsteen’s music, useless facts, horrible puns and The Boston Red Sox. A proud native of the State of Maine, while I only have one sibling and one child, I have 42 first cousins.


3) What is the most delightful part of your life OUTSIDE of work?

Spending time with my husband of 34 years, our son and our tight-knit group of pals who we’ve known for decades. We live in a glorious part of the country and spend a lot of time enjoying its bounty.


4) What is the most MEANINGful thing about your job?

Even after 25 years at Amherst Label, I still learn new things every day. Our business has constantly evolved over the years and the changes are exciting. I am fortunate that there is a group of us who have worked together in this industry for more than 35 years – it makes for a very enjoyable workplace. But the best thing is the relationships I have made with customers and the part that we get to play in the success of their products. It is very satisfying.
